PLEASE NOTE: This is a review of the 2018 Broadway engagement of The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays at the Marquis Theatre.The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays will blow your mind! Starring five differently talented magicians (and featuring the audience), the show is undeniably enjoyable, if sometimes over-produced. While some tricks felt sadly small for the big stage and some of the tech overly stylized for the varying scales of illusion, I found myself laughing and aweing at the mind...
The Illusionists previously wowed New York audiences three record-breaking years in a row with Witness The Impossible, Live on Broadway, and Turn Of The Century, and around the world including smash hit engagements on London’s West End and on tour around the United States and Canada. This year’s family-friendly show promises even more illusions, close-up magic, mentalism, daring escapes, and technological spectacle performed by master entertainers who’ve captivated audiences worldwide on stages from the famed Magic Castle to Royal Variety Performances to multiple seasons of “America’s Got Talent.”

The Illusionists has shattered box office records across the globe and dazzles audiences of all ages with a powerful mix of the most outrageous and astonishing acts ever seen on stage. This non-stop show is packed with thrilling and sophisticated magic of unprecedented proportions.
